As clinicians or educators, how many of you have experienced barriers that get in the way of helping clients or students make progress because of resistance from other members of the treatment (or educational) team? Whether the resistance is from parents, peers, professionals, or any other stakeholders, the end result is the same — the ability to make progress is diminished.
Motivational Interviewing is an evidence-based intervention that has demonstrated substantial success in training teachers and caregivers on behavior modification techniques for children with developmental disabilities, changing addictive behaviors in substance users, and medication adherence in patients, among others. In short, motivational interviewing uses change talk strategies to increase cooperation and decrease resistance.
For clinicians and educators, this is a tool that any clinician and/or educators MUST have in their toolbox. WHY?
Research shows that parents who receive parent training obtain better outcomes during their children’s treatment, which results in decreasing their overall expenditures in therapy and becoming empowered to maintain these behavior changes over time. It has been found that effective communication between the parent and clinician is directly correlated to a parent’s buy-in and adherence to treatment plans.
For clinicians and educators, understanding motivational interviewing is just the beginning. The critical question is HOW?
